Use of Uberon within the ENCODE project image

The Encyclopedia of DNA elements (ENCODE) project identifies properties of regions of the genome such as chromatin structure, protein-binding and methylation. Many of these properties are specific to cell types and tissues, so the ENCODE project uses ontologies to organize and query this information. These ontologies include the Cell-type ontology (CL) and Uberon.
